Did you know you can create a website directly from a GitHub repository?

For FREE?

But first the news:

I sound like a commercial, don’t I?

You’ll have to forgive my enthusiasm. I love to learn new things. I love to code. I love to debug. And GitHub Pages gives me an opportunity to do all three.

For free!

I threw together groningenrain.github.io two years ago shortly after my site was hacked as a space to 1. distract me from feelings of depression and helplessness after the site was hacked and 2. possibly backup my site.

ASIDE: Don’t try to go to groningenrain.github.io – it doesn’t exist anymore.

And then I forgot about it.

But a few weeks ago I remembered it and had to entirely rebuild everything I had done (I hadn’t done much) to make rainleander.github.io.

TaDA!! !

Well, really, meh.

I had a lot of fun coding and figuring out how to apply different templates and creating ‘issues’ templates for the project and hacking BUT what is this going to BE?

I’ve already got a blog. My CV is already online.

And… well… what else is there?

The Farmer Project!

I mean, it’s a possibility.

A tracking system? For all the different projects / working parts / progress and such.

Right now that’s all living in a bunch of different google docs on two different accounts – oops!

And none of it is really an overarching project management tool – maybe I’ll get to that once the design side of things is complete, but maybe not.

Do you have an idea about what you’d use GitHub Pages for? Something I might use it for as well? I’d love to hear from you, Warriors.
